Trad-indie torch carriers Speedy Ortiz have been doing a ton of touring this year, many NYC shows included, and that show-count will increase even more this month when the Northampton, MA band returns for CMJ.
The first of their currently announced CMJ appearances is the previously discussed Panache showcase happening on 10/17 at Baby’s All Right (146 Broadway) with Hunters, Ex-Cult, Calvin Love, Homeshake and Big Ups. More info at the Facebook event. Flyer below.
Then they play Pitchfork’s unnoficial show happening at 285 Kent on 10/18 with Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Priests, Joanna Gruesome, Perfect Pussy, Eleanor Friedberger (solo), and Courtney Barnett. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Flyer and schedule below.
Lastly (for now at least), they play the previously discussed Exploding In Sound Records showcase at Silent Barn on 10/19 with Pile, Fat History Month, Two Inch Astronaut, Grass Is Green, Kal Marks, Palehound, Krill, Roomrunner, and Porches.
After CMJ, Speedy Ortiz singer/guitarist Sadie Dupuis will take part in the Elliott Smith tribute at Glasslands on 10/21 which also features Cat Power, Cole of DIIV, Sky Ferreira, Marissa Nadler and more. Tickets for that show are still available.
And then just after that, Speedy will join Dinosaur Jr. frontman J. Mascis for another Brooklyn show at The Flat on 10/23. More details on that show TBA. Dinosaur Jr. will be back in NYC in December to open for MGMT at Barclays Center (12/13) (tickets).
Meanwhile, speaking of Pitchfork CMJ, they’re doing another unofficial show at 285 Kent on 10/19 with an electronic-oriented lineup of Ryan Hemsworth, Kelela, Traxman, The Range, Jahiliyya Field, Huerco S, and Mas Ysa. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Flyer and schedule below.
